Agency seeks contractor for technical refresh of Balkans IT infrastructure


The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency released in June an Invitation for Bids (IFB) to execute a technical refresh of NATO and the European Union's IT infrastructures in the Balkans.


The project is focused on replacing obsolete hardware and unsupported software across three network classifications at 15 locations that support NATO and European Force missions in the Balkans, mainly in Kosovo and Bosnia Herzegovina.

"This will be a great opportunity for industry to support the delivery of a large complex project that will enable mission success for both NATO and the EU," said Alexandru-Mihai Andrei, Senior Project Manager for the effort.

With the help of industry, the Agency will design, purchase, implement and deliver an updated IT infrastructure in the required locations. The estimated investment cost for the services and deliverables included within the scope of the intended contract is 13.6 million EUR.

The Agency plans to award the contract in November.

"This work package is important for NATO because it will align the Balkans area of operations with the overall NATO digital strategy," Andrei said.
